The Scooby-Doo Justice Project Podcast is dedicated to the belief that most of the “villains” in the original TV series “Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?” were actually innocent. We believe that these men weren’t just mistakenly accused of their crimes, but were purposely FRAMED.
Now we are convinced it’s our job to clear their names. Follow along as Ralph Cramp and his criminal consultants conduct an ongoing investigation of the 1969-1970 Saturday morning cartoon. We use “secure names” in order to ensure our personal safety.
Ralph Cramp, Independent Investigator and Official Spokesman
The founder of The Scooby-Doo Justice Project, Mr. Cramp provides a nexus for the group’s ongoing research and serves as the mouthpiece of their analysis. Because his theories about the Scooby-Doo show are controversial, Mr. Cramp sometimes serves as a lightning rod for those who vehemently disagree. He always responds with courage and dignity, never stooping to namecalling, unless absolutely necessary.
J.W. Chafe, Criminal Researcher
Having had his own brush with the law, Mr. Chafe provides insight from “the criminal perspective”: What would a hardened criminal be thinking right now? What do hardened criminals like to eat? Have you heard any stories like this when you were in jail? Mr. Chafe was once temporarily suspended from the show when an anonymous tipster claimed that our criminal researcher had no criminal record. A difficult time for the group.
Frank Melasma, Legal Consultant
Mr. Melasma offers concise opinions on the legality of the various actions of the Scooby-Doo gang and their shadowy overlords. After appearing on several episodes, it was discovered that he had not passed the bar exam in any state nor had he attended law school. But he explained that this gives him an outsider’s view of the law, a perspective not skewed by going through “the system.” Because we cannot afford to pay him an hourly rate for his services, Mr. Melasma has negotiated a deal where he is allowed to promote various products and services during his appearances.
Joe Jaundice, Film Correspondent
With an extensive knowledge of contemporary film and television, Mr. Jaundice is able to fill in the gaps in our lead researcher’s knowledge. One of Mr. Jaundice’s ongoing challenges has been to phone in a live report from a cinema during a movie. He claims it’s because they will take his phone away. But others believe that a correspondent’s job is to report “live” during momentus events.
Marion Migraine, Podcast Producer
Though not part of the research team, Ms. Migraine always ensures that the group is never without a woman’s opinion. She’s paid to produce the show and so brings the valuable insight of a contrarian who is not necessarily impressed with much of the content. Ms. Migraine also produces her own podcast “Santa Monica Peer,” in which Regency era novels (like Pride & Prejudice) are reimagined as taking place in the contemporary California beach scene.
You, The Listener
Where do YOU fit in? In each episode our team examines key elements of the TV show as a whole and offers an alternative analysis of the official crime theory presented in a particular cartoon episode. But if nobody’s listening, then why are we doing this podcast in the first place? We appreciate you visiting our website. Now, however, it’s time to click on one of the podcast episodes and do YOUR job–listening!
